I was really happy that I got invited to the Pringle of Scotland show at LFW, since I've been a big fan of Alistair Carr's creations since quite some time.
The beautiful AW 12 collection was inspired by the designers return to England after a few years abroad, which brought up memories of his youth. Carr himself says: “Behind this collection is a girl I used to know at school, grown out of her teenage angst into a sophisticated woman, but with just a hint of that rebellious past remaining” – his inspiration showed in the integral box pleats which remind of school skirts.
A typical Pringle of Scotland piece is the twinset which appeared in the collection as well several times.
I adored the simplicity of the collection, it was kind of tomboy-ish, yet really chic and feminine and super appropriate for the colder months containing thick coats and leather jackets, combined with refined knitwear and slim pants of the aforementioned skirts.
And the shoes, which were designed by Chrissie Morris with shoe jewellery by Husam El Odeh, were super stunning ♥
By the way, you can see Antonia Wesseloh on the first picture, who is a model-shootingstar from Germany who had her breakthrough because she was the face of the previous Prada campaign and who I know slightly – I’m sure she’s a future supermodel :)
